About

These new apartments meet a housing need for veterans with a disability who have experienced homelessness, veterans who have experienced chronic homelessness, and low-income veteran families in Riverside County.
According to the Riverside County 2014 Homeless Veterans Count and Survey, there were 173 unsheltered veterans, 98 of whom were chronically homeless and 146 having either chronic health conditions or physical disabilities in need of permanent housing. This project has received support from the Department of Veterans Affairs, the County of Riverside Department of Veterans Services, and the County of Riverside Continuum of Care. The site is located within short distance of Beaumont's major bus lines including the Commuter Link 120 line which has a stop at the VA Loma Linda Healthcare System. Beaumont is centrally located within 20 miles of the Loma Linda and San Bernardino Veterans Affairs Centers and just over a half mile from the local Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 223. Additionally, the site is within walking distance or a bus ride to grocery stores, public parks, pharmacies, banks, schools, major retail employment centers, and a library.

Along with a manager's unit onsite, the development serves 37 veteran households: 19 units for homeless veterans with a disability, two units for chronically homeless veterans, and 16 units for veteran families earning less than 60% of area median income for Riverside County. Community areas include multi-purpose space to host resident programs, a computer lab, and private meeting rooms for service providers and case managers. Linc partners with established agencies that serve veterans to provide onsite support and case management. Linc Housing also runs resident services such as adult education, youth programs, health and wellbeing activities, and social events.

Linc Housing is dedicated to providing housing that is built to be energy and water efficient. Construction incorporated water-saving features including: low-flow faucets and toilets, tankless water heaters, front-loading laundry room washers, drought-tolerant landscaping with no turf areas, and weather-based landscape irrigation sensors.
